Jan Saxton, Bowenwork
Jan came to appreciate the value of alternative medicine while raising four rambunctious sons. She learned the basics of homeopathic and herbal remedies to deal with their tummy aches, colds, earaches, scrapes, cuts and bruises and has been sharing her healing skill with friends and family members ever since. She added Bowenwork to her repertoire in 2006, practicing informally in her spare time while working as V.P. and Senior Media Analyst at Adams Media Research.
After leaving the corporate world in 2012, Jan completed her certification as a Bowen practitioner in 2013 and started building her practice. She offers Bowenwork sessions on Wednesday at the Wellness Center in Soquel, on Monday in Hollister at Gaia’s Cottage and at her home in Aromas on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and by appointment on Saturdays. Early in 2014, she completed the training to become an Associate Bowenwork Instructor and now teaches Introduction to Bowen classes.
A dedicated volunteer, Jan has served in a series of leadership positions at the Aromas Community Grange, including two terms as president, served for ten years on the Aromas Day organizing committee, is director of the Teressie White Memorial Scholarship Foundation, is a founding member of Transition Aromas, and currently sits on the board of the San Benito Time Exchange.
